Twilight escape

As slippery sun sinks
Into its envelope
Behind clouds,
As quiet desperation of a long day
Ebbs away
With the breath of peace
Consuming it.
Like a flame to aged paper
Ignited with splendor
Of twilight,
I shall sit beside
Cool still waters
Reflective of the sky above
Healing energy will run through
Like lotion on parchment skin
It is there that I am reborn
Muscles fall into states
Of nothing
Taking on the look of death
So very still
Yet so very much alive
As blood rushes through
Earth massage
Of time and space
And a mind wiped clean
Sultry nature spa.
Ready for the stars and moon
Galaxy drive thru view,
Splendid and worthy
Of every award
The dark blue carpet
Cosmic flashbulbs
Paying homage to
The silent twinkling above.


Where have they gone
Sweet flight of thought
Mind mired
Bogged down,
Watching the mouths
Open close
Open close
Nothing of importance said.
Peacocks fluff
Feathered foliage
Look at me
They seem to say
As they walk on by,
While the peasants toil
Their eyes say it all
As blood begins to boil
Work work work some more
You have no life,
So that we have ours,
New plumage needed
More wallets to fill
As somewhere
Down below
Foundering beneath the rubble
A single flower dares to seek
The sun on high,
Roots seek the moisture
A kind word
Needed to thrive,
To rise above
The fray
Of a wasteland.

Raindrop dreaming

I dreamt
And the rain fell quietly
Beyond the window,
Fresh scent
Cleansing the mind
Washing away
Leaving sweet dreams
Stray cats soft
Angora fur weaving between ankles
Touch this
Take me home
Where did you come from
Whiskered friend,
You so soft
And there came more
And I smiled
Walking towards the door
As the rain began to fall
Awaking to songs playing
Somewhere in my mind
A Canadian band
And the shades blew
The smell of earth
Blowing over sweat moistened skin.
Cat stares in the darkness
Peering out the window
To the world beyond
Mind open to a brand new day
Surrounded by hounds
And the curious cat
Nudging my dreams
With kneading paws
Leaving me refreshed
Beyond the rain falls gently
Natures alarm clock
Through opened windows.
